Potassium is an element (and an electrolyte) that's essential for the body's growth and maintenance. It's necessary to keep a normal water balance between the cells and body fluids. Potassium also plays an essential role in the response of nerves to stimulation and in the contraction of muscles. Cellular enzymes need potassium to work properly.
Potassium is found in a number of foods, including dairy, fish and other meats, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Because food processing reduces the levels of naturally occurring nutrients in foods, supplementation may be necessary to insure adequate intake. NOW has been selling powdered supplements since 1968 because of their distinct advantages. The powdered form is 100% pure and free of fillers and preservatives. It is also more economical and can be taken in desired potencies.
